There’s a major difference between stupid and criminally stupid. Stupid is lacking intelligence or common sense. Stupid people tend to do things without thinking about the repercussions of what they’re doing. Criminally stupid is doing something that you know is against the law, and incriminating yourself the entire time. It’s committing a crime and not giving yourself any kind of alibi whatsoever. The guy in the video is definitely criminally stupid!
A man from Tulsa, Oklahoma named John Pinney decided he was going to pull of the joy ride of the century. Already a convict, having spent a couple years in prison prior, he saw an unoccupied cop car with the keys in it. So, like the genius he is, he decided to jump in and take himself a stroll. Now, if there were no cameras in the car he may have been able to get away with it, but he wanted to also be Internet famous so he went live on Facebook while he drove the stolen police car.
He isn’t the only person that’s seen a running cop car and thought about taking it, but he is the only person, so far, that’s done it and filmed themselves in the act of the crime for the world to see. With that being said, we should thank him for the entertainment.
Tulsa police sergeant Steve Stoltz said, “I would encourage every criminal out there to Facebook Live their crimes so that we can catch you a lot easier and use that Facebook Live at your trial to get a better conviction.”
